Did you know ADX is home to one of the top custom design & fabrication shops in Portland?
You’ve likely seen our team’s handiwork in places all around Portland or beyond. In this three part series, we’ll give you an inside look at our recent projects, our design and build process, and the people behind this fine work.
Our client, a technological installation artist from Interhacktive, came to ADX to make his idea a reality. His vision? Mariposa, a 40-foot tall light, sound, and touch interactive chandelier. Mariposa utilizes a complex network of motion sensors, sounds, and LED lights to generate audiovisual displays based on interaction. This breathtaking installation is located in Denver, CO, so unfortunately, we can’t play with it but in Part 2 we’ll show you how it was made!
Luc Lac Vietnamese Kitchen: Interior
Last December, Luc Lac closed their doors in order to bring their look up to par with their top-notch cuisine. This project incorporated a football field of copper, steel, and wood and can now be seen stretching across an entire wall of the newly renovated restaurant. Next time we’ll show you the inspiration for this installation and what it took to build it.
Pfriem Family Brewers: Artisanal Manufacturing
Great brews need equally well crafted tap handles. That’s why Pfriem, winner of Williamette Week’s 2014 Beer of the Year, came to ADX to develop their rustic, hand crafted handles. In part 2, we’ll show you how a truckload of barn wood turned into those awesome tap handles you keep seeing around town.
Tokio Table Japanese Steakhouse: Furniture
The owner of Tokio Table, a brand new Japanese Steakhouse on Division, came to ADX to design and fabricate a sleek set of communal teppanyaki tables. These white-topped, zebra wood veneer clad behemoths can each accommodate a 300-pound, 30,000 BTU hibachi griddle, and seat plenty. Tokio Table is not yet open but we’re excited to see these dynamic tables in action soon!
In Part 2, we’ll explore our design and build process and give you a “behind-the-scenes” look at how to complete these projects.
